JennifHsieh is a space for my rambling thoughts and snaps of my everyday style. I'm based in Astoria, Queens and I share a home with my two derpy cats and my equally derpy fiancé.


The weather this week has been getting lousy again - it even snowed in North Jersey! From the looks of it the next two days are full of rain and snow. What happened to the beginning of spring? I even got my free Rita's Italian Ice, which means it MUST be spring. At least the weekend will be sunny despite the temperature being in the low 40's. And that's it for your JennifHsieh weather update.

(American Rag Coat, Old Navy Cardigan, Forever 21 Blouse, Forever 21 Belt, Forever 21 Jeans, Aldo Shoes, Aldo Backpack)

It's taken me forever to finally style up this shirt. It always hung in my closet being a loner because I couldn't figure out how to wear it. It's slightly sheer, has a huge neckline, and has bat wing sleeves like no other. I finally decided to belt it and wear it under a cardigan which worked perfectly. Maybe next time I wear it I won't hide it under layers of clothing...but that has yet to be determined.

And say hello to my new shoes and my new backpack (how material do I sound?). I got to bond with my mom over spring break with some outlet shopping and I came across both these pieces. The shoes were on sale (and the sales lady wouldn't stop telling me how cute they were just so I could buy them) and the backpack I had instantly fallen in love with. Thanks mom for indulging me a little. I love that when I shop with her now she'll point out how cute something will look on my blog.

Oh, and I've decided that these shoes are officially my sexy pilgrim shoes (see the last picture for up-close shots). I feel a little silly when I'm clomping around in them from class to class and they make my feet look abnormally tiny. I wore them yesterday when I had classes from 10:20am until 9:30pm. Stupid Jen.

You won't be seeing any outfit posts for the rest of this week since I'm drowning in stuff I have to do for NJ Circle K's District Convention this weekend. It's when all the Circle K members from all the NJ colleges/universities get together in order to elect the new District Board and celebrate the past service year. I'm actually running for District Governor, which means I would be in charge of managing all the Circle K activities state-wide so wish me luck! I'll be sure to post pictures when I return. I'll be having some guest posts over the next few days thanks to my favorite people in the blogging world - my readers! :)
